My 500D hadthe fault the safety device has been activated. It made an awful grinding noise just before and then the warning came up, now the needle won't move and the hand wheel doesn't turn.


If the safety device has been activated, something is seriously wrong with your machine that could be a hazard. Take it for service.

Error message "the safety device has been activated. Is the thread tangled? Is the needle bent?" Occurred after needle no 5 broke and fell out. The machine


If the safety has been activated, there is something wrong with the machine that could potentially be dangerous--to the machine or you. You should probably take it to a technician.

Machine locked up with needle down in the machine


If you can, try to remove the needleplate and the bobbin case from the machine. Once the bobbin case is removed, the needle should be free.

Messages about safe device activated & press the needle position button


The noise is because the machine is trying to raise or lower a needle and can't move. Several things to check. Did the needle break and jam in the bottom thread? Is the needle bent or jam? Did the thread jam in the bobbin area? I had a 'knot' of thread build up on the bottom and it hooked itself into the metal clip on the bobbin so that the needle couldn't raise. If thread jams in the bottom carefully cut the threads until you can free the hoop and material. Then check to make sure all pieces of thread and fuzz has been removed in the bobbin case. If it happens again check to see if the bobbin case or the throat plate is scratched or bent. If you are stitching Free Standing Lace on this machine or a piece with over 20,000 stitches I recommend starting with a new full bobbin and a new needle. As you get toward the bottom of the bobbin, thread seems to have a high likelihood of tangling or looping.

On my brother ult2003d I can't get it to sew two stitches before it bird nests appear under the needle. changed needle, threads, blew it out, nothing seems to help. flashes up on screen that safety device...


try these suggestions first
make sure top thread has not come off thread take up lever
try a new needle--make sure it's the right one for the fabric being sewed--make sure the needle is inserted correctly up into the needle holder
make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions help
it's possible that the timing could be off, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked

I have a Janome 4900Qc which has the sign Stop for Safety Purposes, this comes up really often, it has been back and been checked but no better now


Are you having thread jamming problems before you get this message?

I found that my bobbin holder which is held by magnets was being dislodged when I had a thread jam up, usually when I was trying to sew something very thick over a seam such as jeans hems.

Have you mastered removing the needle plate and the bobbin holder to clean in under it and putting this all back together again? With my 6500P, the needle had been striking the bobbin holder when it dislodged and rotated out of postion, the bobbin case had holes and damage to the plastic which was then catching the thread as the bobbin rotated making the jams happen.

Each time, I would dismantle the bobbin holder, clean everything, cut the jammed up threads, check the bobbin case and give the damaged bit a file with a nail file to make it smooth again, then put it back matching the red markings on the bobbin holder and the stopper, rethread and start over. I have bought two new bobbin cases too and taken it back to the dealer a couple of times over 5 years.

I've now learnt to not try to stitch over the thick seam intersections, I'll stop before, lift the pressure foot, move the work past the seam, then restart sewing. However, my machine was just serviced last week and it looks to me like the mechanic has added a part to hold the bobbin case in better, its like a little black lug on the left screwed into the outer housing. So perhaps Janome have addressed this issue with an aftermarket repair.

Apologies if this is telling stuff you already knew, good luck.

My babylock says THE SAFETY DEVICE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED. The belt is not broke. I have changed the needle and pressure foot and still when you start to sew it does nothing and the above wording comes...


When you get that error message it usally means there is a jam in the machine that is causing the motor to work to hard so it keeps you from burning up the motor try taking your needle plate off and bobbin case out and then put your needle plate back on and then the bobbin case if that doesnt work try looking at the take-up lever there might be thread wraped around it soaking up the oil and causing a bind

Needle hits the bobbin holder and doesn't grab the bobbin thread


Check you have the right size bobbin case the gap where the needle enters should be 13mm approx at the widest point. A lot of other pfaff bobbin cases seem to fit and can be easily be mistaken. I have two pfaffs and have accidentally mixed the cases and had a similar problem.

Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck
